The good news is that the first two Bayonetta games are coming to Nintendo Switch next year. The bad news, at least for those of us in North America, is that we’re apparently not getting the deluxe, “Non-Stop Climax Edition” of Bayonetta and Bayonetta 2 that Japan (and Europe) are getting.

Nintendo is releasing a deluxe edition bundle of Bayonetta and Bayonetta 2 that not only includes those two games on Nintendo Switch game cards, it also includes a nice SteelBook case, 22 physical Verse cards and three sheets full of Bayonetta stickers.

Here’s a look at Japan’s Bayonetta Non-Stop Climax Edition:

And here’s a look at all the extras that come in that box:

You’ll note that the SteelBook has a nice little visual treat: Bayonetta with her look from the original game posing as she does on the sequel’s cover and vice versa.

Europe is getting a similar package, but it appears the original Bayonetta won’t be included physically, but as a download from the Nintendo eShop.

In North America, we’ll get a Switch game case with Bayonetta 2 on a game card and a download for the original Bayonetta.

If you feel like importing the Japanese deluxe edition, it’ll cost you 9,980 yen (about $88).
